I have chosen these A levels at the moment, History, Classics and Physics. Also I am not taking maths with physics either. I am now debating to do Politics instead of Physics, as I am 99% sure I am not taking physics at uni. Should I keep my unique choice, which would make different from other applicants during uni application or shall I take Politics that will merge well with the rest of my subjects?

Are you likely to get a higher grade in politics and physics? If so, don’t worry about the facilitating a levels as you have history, as the a level will give you some general knowledge for studying politics at university. Classics is already a unique choice, as the norm would be history, politics and english

i got an 8 in my physics gcse and a 7 for maths, so I did meet the requirements for physics a level, but I am unsure if I am going to get a better grade in physics as i am not taking maths with it. I feel like I could get a better grade for politics.

Yeah it’s generally not recommended to do physics without maths for a level, and the cohort of students attaining a/* in physics without maths a level is probably very low, and if you’re more confident in politics, go for it.

ah okay, I'll probably have research more on the percentage of how many people get a/* for physics without maths, but thank you this has helped!
